With some christmas money that I got, Im thinking about getting an Audigy 2 ZS sound card. My only problem, is that Im having trouble deciding whether to get the oem version or retail.

The retail is $89 at newegg and oem is $74. The retail comes with Tomb Raider and Raven Shield, and also has the gold connectors, whereas the oem doesnt. Do those gold connectors make a difference? Also note that the oem isnt the ZS version. What do u think?

Let me know, thanks.

I second that, Retail is the way to go for that little of a price difference. its $15? and you get many extra features including the warrenty, games and all the other improvements.
